any ideas?

Moved from Butterflies.

Question Mark, I believe

You can just make out the little curved line followed by a dot in the hindwing (I cropped it to make this a bit clearer). This is more orange than any we have in the guide - perhaps it's the fall form.

i almost guessed Question Mar
i almost guessed Question Mark but i thought the shape of the wings was slightly off from the usual form of the Question Mark. besides this one, i've only seen one other one with its wings layed down on a flower.

thank you.
